Ultherapy Can Be Used Directly Under The Eyes
Ultherapy can be used around the eyes on the bone
You can treat outside the orbit
You can treat the area under the eye but not right up to the lower lid. The treatment needs to be kept outside of the orbit of the eye. At this time the most shallow depth Ulthera goes to is 1.5mm which is great for treating the texture under the eyes. Botox is great for preventing under eye wrinkles.

Yes it can!
Thank you for the question. Ulthera can be used under the eyelid but it always depends on the patient and their specific needs. That being said, the treatment does not replace a blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery. Schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon to decide what your best options are.

Ultherapy 1.5mm is perfect for under eye wrinkles and laxity
Ultherapy utilizing 1.5mm transducer is perfect for eyelid laxity and wrinkles without any downtime (unless there is rare incidence of bruising). The alternatives are laser resurfacing and/or hyaluronic acid filler injection; however, specific recomendation should be made in person by your dermatologist or plastic surgeon.

There are protocols available, mainly using transducers the penetrate 3 mm and 1.5 mm below the skin with ultrasound energy, that has been developed for infraorbital region. We've hand good amount of experience both with 3mm and a newly released 1.5 mm devices. As with any cosmetic therapy, the results vary per patient to patient basis.
Ulthera can be effective in the under eye area
I have been using Ulthera treatment for tightening of the lower lids for over a year with good results. The effect is more a firming of contour than an elimination of wrinkles. The new 1.5mm transducer is more effective for wrinkle reduction and allows treatment closer to the lid margin. In patients where wrinkles are the predominant problem, however, skin resurfacing may be a more effective option.
Ultherapy treatment for lower eyelid
Ultherapy treatments for tightening and uplifting of the skin maybe be used under eyes the treatment gives improvements to the lower eyelids with notion that the results are subtle but nice. It is safe to treat that area if proper technique is used. Results take 4 to 6 months to notice.
